Building Capacity for Nano Education and Outreach through Partnerships with Science Museums: Overview and Case Study
31 Mar 2009 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Carol Lynn Alpert, NCLT administator
This session will present the background and theory behind these collaborations and
activities, provide examples, and address evaluative aspects. We will also touch briefly on
a range of other examples of nanoscale research center – informal science education
institutional collaborations, now linked and sharing resources through the NISE Network.
We will also address what these organizations have learned about what makes these kinds
of partnerships most effective and how the NISE Network can provide resources and
expertise to assist in collaborative efforts. NanoDays 2009 is scheduled for March 28 –
April 5, and it is an excellent opportunity around which to kickstart a productive new
education and outreach collaboration.
